Icarus Publishing Enterprise, Holstebro - Malta - Wroclaw – London – New York 2014. 219 pages. In English.
Jerzy Grotowski´s Journeys to the East is an unusual collection of facts, quotations, and commentaries documenting the real and metaphorical journeys of the Polish theatre director and “teacher of performers” into a geographical and cultural dimension which we used to and still call the Orient. Grotowski´s contacts and meetings with the East are placed here in the context of his biography. Painstakingly researched by Grotowski´s main biographer Zbigniew Osiński, this book is necessary reading for those interested in Grotowski´s deep relationship with the East and in the inspiration he drew from its various cultures. The book will appeal to all readers who feel a need to have a glimpse of the East from the perspective of one of the main theatre reformers in the twentieth century.
